lip care productsThe lip’s exposed membrane structure is different from other skin. Lips do not have the many protective layers of stratum corneum that is found in other skin. They also do not have the protection provided by the sweat glands and oil glands. Therefore, the lips are much more vulnerable to any exposure to natural elements such as wind, cold, sun, etc. Long-term negligence of the lips will result in chapping, cracking, bleeding and the appearance of premature aging. Because of the structure of their skin, lips require consistent moisturization and protection if they are subject to exposure. We take these needs into account to help us produce our Drakeol® Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, and Versagel® that are used in lip care applications.
